Why an Apple-designed battery could be a huge deal for the iPhone 17

We already know that Apple likes to develop its own components. It brought chip production in-house with its A and M-series system-on-a-chip processors for MacBooks and higher-end iPhones. Now a new rumour suggests that it might be planning to do something similar with iPhone batteries.

It's been claimed that Apple could start producing its own iPhone batteries as soon as 2025. That could mean that they arrive in time for the iPhone 17 (assuming that Apple sticks to its usual schedule for new models; see our guide to the best Apple Black Friday 2023 deals for the best current bargains).
